Most visitors from London might head to Nottingham for the Robin Hood experience, but there's a lot more to it than men dressed in green, singing away. It also plays home to some other history, with the Ye Olde Trip to Jerusalem being one of the oldest pubs in the country.

The pub sits at the foot of the impressive Nottingham Castle, with some 450 caves and caverns dug into the hill that the castle is built on, making for a tour of their own. There's also a ghost tour for those who want to hear the gorier and darker side of Nottingham's history.

Nottingham has some more modern history with Brian Clough's statue in the Old Market Square, and Nott's Forest's City Ground and the Trent Bridge test cricket ground are must-sees for sports fans. The square is also home to Nottingham's impressive civic buildings and not far from the Lace Market, which celebrates the city's more delicate history, and is home to some of the town's more hip places to eat out.

Up the road from the square on Talbot Street is Rock City, one of the busiest and best live music venues in the country, while the smaller Maze on Mansfield Road is the place to see lots of up-and-coming acts. Music fans should also visit The Music Exchange in Hockley, one of the best independent record shops in the country. Very much its own town, Nottingham has its distinct place in history, but is still a great to place to visit if you've something more modern in mind.
